Invitation to a Duck Shoot
At Salton Sea’s Red Hill Marina I was captivated and immersed into the beauty of the landscape. The serene and calm horizontal view of the Red Hill floating on the receded sea bed. An island on land. Then I heard the sound of gunshots.
My project engages with the conflict between the beauty of the landscape and the brutality of the program that inhabits it - duck hunting. The Red Hill Marina is part of the Sonny Bono Wildlife Refuge and simultaneously a duck hunting ground. I am therefore redesigning the environment and the duck blinds through the speculation of the relationship between the hunters and their views from the 'backyard' of their trailers, set in the American landscape.
